How to Get Silky Straight Hair

Want to get silky straight hair that looks like you just stepped out of a Ralph Lauren commercial? We’ve got a few secrets that will have your hair shiny smooth in no time.

Silky straight hair starts in the shower. Find a straightening shampoo that doesn’t contain any sulfates.

Use a smoothing mist when you get out of the shower. Comb in through your hair and allow it to sit for a bit. If you have time, it’s best to let your hair air dry to avoid heat damage. Try these 10 blow dryer-free hairstyles to give your hair a break. If you must blow dry, use a ceramic ion round bristle brush to smooth the ends of your hair.

Once your hair is dry, use a ceramic-plated flat iron to get that stick straight look. Use a heat protectant spray if it isn’t already included in the smoothing mist.

We all crave silky straight hair because it looks so healthy, so give yourself a head start by taking care of your hair. Don’t overdo coloring or blow drying, and get regular trims for a healthy head of hair. For more straight hair tips, consult our Ultimate Guide for Straight Hair.
